8. Fox McCloud

Fox McCloud revolutionized an entire genre.

Star Fox was released way back on the SNES console and became one of the first installments in a new genre. This spaceship shooter became hugely popular and Fox McCloud became a staple for Nintendo. Today he is probably more well-known for his appearances in the Super Smash Bros games in which he is a super fast and agile fighter. McCloud has a large cult following and is on the Nintendo Power list as one of the favorite Nintendo heroes ever. Playing as Fox McCloud, you lead a squad of human like animal pilots in defending your planet from an invasion.

Star Fox has been on a bit of a drought for the last decade since no original titles have been released in 9 years. However, look for the new Star Fox game to come out on the Wii U this year. Nintendo is bringing the beloved Fox back.
